BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine Iconic Edition has been launched in India at Rs 53.50 lakh for the 330Li, petrol variant and Rs 54.90 lakh for the 320Ld, diesel variant. The Iconic Edition is a limited run stock and packs a few premium features over the standard variant. The internals, engines and design remain the same as the previous release. It is based on the LWB version of the BMW 3 Series which adds 110mm of length to the wheelbase of Bavaria’s smallest sedan.
BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine Iconic Edition new features
On the exterior, the Iconic Edition of the BMW 3 Series Gran Limousine gets an illuminated kidney grille, which makes it look pretty cool. And in the interior, the Iconic Edition brings in an all-new crystal gear shift knob that makes the already fancy cabin a little fancier. On the rear, the car gets a headrest cushion for maximum comfort of the rear seat passengers along with a coat hanger with a base carrier. Other than these tidbits the car remains identical to the standard Luxury Line trim and gets the Vernasca leather upholstery along with more premium functionalities — the electrically adjustable seats, panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, three-zone automatic climate control and interiors optimised for noise reduction.
The 3 Series Gran Limousine Iconic Edition is available in three exterior colours — Mineral White, Carbon Black and Cashmere Silver. And the interior upholstery is available in Cognac | Black colours.
